USA Landscape Photographer of the Year 2016 Winner
A visually stunning and dramatic view of Mount Rainier has won the top prize in this year’s search for USA Landscape Photographer of the Year’s winning entry. Portland based photographer, Alex Noriega, becomes the third person to win the overall title and the $15,000 prize. His picture of Mount Rainier as it rises above low clouds, seen from high above Tipsoo Lake was chosen, by the judges, from the thousands of entries received from over 40 countries across the globe, all celebrating the beauty and free spirit of the American landscape.

Charlie Waite, one of Britain’s leading landscape photographers and founder of the Awards spoke about this year’s competition:
“Apart from the pleasure I enjoy from my own landscape photography, there can be few experiences that come near the huge enjoyment and admiration that I have had from looking at photographs submitted to the USA Landscape Photographer of the Year.
I have been truly overwhelmed by the high quality, considered and finely crafted images that we have seen from so many talented photographers who have contributed for the third USA Landscape Photographer of the Year 2016.
From the start of the contest, the standard of landscape photography has been as high as it ever has been.
The wonderful images that I have seen are testament to not only every photographer’s passion but for the obvious joy they receive from their creativity and indeed from fully engaging with some of the greatest landscapes on the planet.”
USA Young Landscape Photographer of the Year 2016 Winner
USA YOUNG LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2016 WINNER Raiatea Arcuri
The Young Landscape Photographer of the Year title has been awarded to Raiatea Arcuri, who captured coastal lava tubes along the Kona coast on the Island of Hawaii. Raiatea said of her image “What makes the Big Island special is the presence of lava tubes around the island. Some of these lava tubes at the coast will make amazing water motion as the waves push water in and out. It can be quite an epic experience capturing it. The water can easily surge up to your waist level and quickly recede back into the tube, creating a nice waterfall.”
